Mémorial de la Shoah

The Shoah Memorial in France

The Shoah Memorial is a recognized Foundation of public utility. The Shoah Memorial works for the dissemination and teaching of the history of the Shoah to large and diverse audiences, including school children. He designs exhibitions within his institutions and abroad, in France and abroad, and circulates travelling exhibitions.

The Memorial is Europe’s largest research, information and awareness centre on the history of the Jewish genocide during the Second World War. It is a place of memory, pedagogy and transmission.

The arrival of new establishments now strengthens the national base of the Memorial and makes it possible to amplify the actions already carried out in the regions via our local branch in Toulouse, our correspondents in Grenoble, Lyon, Lille and Strasbourg, and our activities outside the walls.

Acting everywhere in France also means reaching out to students and teachers in their schools throughout the country through pedagogical activities that can be done on site – travelling exhibitions, workshops, screenings, meetings, etc. – to show all the consequences of racism and anti-Semitism from the history of the Shoah and other genocides of the 20th century.
